No early morning coverage

Heysham Obs
Good numbers of Wheatears (19 located mid-morning & non-op land not checked), extremely variable in size, and perhaps including Scandinavia-bound birds [e.g. yesterdays weather synopsis] as well as Iceland/Greenland. Single White Wagtail on Ocean Edge foreshore - late for this form here. A singing male Reed Warbler on the NR was probably a new arrival.

Sea 1345-1645
Arctic Skua - light morph 'in' at 1450hrs, seemed to go high and overland over Morecambe west end

Common Tern - 2 outfalls
Arctic Tern - 6 outfalls
Shag - 3 juvs

2 Spoonbill, pair of Garganey and a single Egyptian Goose in the Leighton Moss area with an Osprey through at 1300hrs. Last night's weather seems to have clobbered Lapwing chicks in Upper Hindburndale
